FWIW, at my company we're actually working on something similar for
SVN + Ivy (we have a monorepo too, in svn, with all of our projects
together under /trunk, and sparse working copies for developers and on
our build servers).

We want to have automatically expanding/contracting sparse working
copies, based on the ivy dependencies between modules (starting from a
given "main module"). So far I've written a written a hackish python
script that finds all "ivy.xml" files in our tree as quickly as
possible (up to a certain directory level), 'svn cat's them, and
invokes an ant-ivy task to determine a list of the needed modules for
the given main module (in the form of relative paths in svn where
those ivy.xml's reside).

What's still left is "applying" that list of subdirs to a given
working copy (or checking out a new one with these subdirs). So here
too, I'd like to have a view(spec) feature that can handle the output
from our "ivy dependency tree" script as input, and adapt the wc
sparsity to it (or checkout a new one with the given sparsity).

For now I've had to put my work on that auto-scoping functionality on
hold (other priorities), but I hope to get back to it someday.
